Opening a bank account in Denmark

by James
(USA)

I am planning on moving to Denmark in a few years. I would like to start putting money in a bank account there but I am not in a position to get a CPR number yet. Its going to take me a while to get my papers together. I know I have read it is hard to do. but everyone says there are some banks that do this.. Can you point me in the right direction? I would like to have something in place when I do apply for residence permits and the eventual CPR number. Any help would be appreciated.



Response: Contact the banks listed on the Banks in Denmark page. I am not going to do your banking for you. It is just a matter of you taking the initiative to call and talk with them or email the banks and they can advise you if there is any possibility of banking with them.

It's true that you don't need the passport to cross the borders but, you do need a passport to identify your self to a police officer if they ask you.
